Mott Bridge

$1800
2006
The Mott Bridge was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in 1935 and 1936. It is located on the North Umpqua River just upstream from the confluence with Steamboat Creek. The CCC was a public works relief program for unemployed men age 18-25, providing unskilled manual labor related to the conservation and development of natural resources in rural areas of the United States from 1933 to 1942. The CCC became the most popular of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal programs providing jobs for a total of 3 million young men from families on relief during the Great Depression. The CCC also led to awareness and appreciation of the outdoors and the nation's natural resources, especially for city youth. The Mott Bridge was named for nationally known author and sportsman, Jordan Laurance Mott IV, who had a fishing camp near there from 1929 to 1931.
